New Novel by A.K. Delaney Set for Release
by BWW News Desk - Aug 2, 2016

Leap into the pages of author A.K. Delaney's debut novel, 'Bearers of the Sacred Seven: The First Quest,' and enter into a world filled with distinct characters, powerful imagery and a vivid landscape. Delaney's love of sacred Writings, coupled with an inner drive, compelled the author to create 'Bearers of the Sacred Seven: The First Quest,' an epic quest with insurmountable battles against the forces of evil. The unbridled adventure begins when an ancient prophecy is set in motion by the birth of triplets. From their youth, the sisters train with Zamariy warriors, learning the art of combat before embarking upon a journey that has been destined for more than a thousand generations. The trio emerge as the devoted Bearers, enduring scorching deserts, treacherous mountains, and unforgiving seas to reclaim a sacred book sealed within a gem coffer that was stolen from the Realm of Olam. Victory is hindered as the Bearers' faith is tested within themselves and within others. Constant setbacks and threads of temptation place love and loyalty in a balance. Courage must rise above fear as the Bearers face one deadly enemy after another. Ultimately, they must embrace their unique gifts if they are to survive their deadliest battle against the source of evil: the one who has held captive the gem coffer and its sacred book deep beneath the blackest sea for thousands of years. Delve into Delaney's new book and surely emotions will explode as one wades deeper and deeper into the inherent battle of good versus evil that unravels in this fantasy tale of adventure. The trios' exploits will fire readers' imaginations and make for a rip-roaring read. For additional information, please visit Bearers of the Sacred Seven: The First Quest A.K.
